The iPad mini will share the stage with an updated third-gen iPad that packs international 4G support, according to a new report.

Apple is widely expected to unveil the rumored ‘iPad mini’ at a press event this month, with many speculating that event invites will be sent to the press as soon as tomorrow, October 10th.

Apple Wants It Both Ways With iPad3.com Domain Name

Expert Says iPad Wi-Fi Issues May Be Caused By Bad Power Management

After ripping into the new iPad when it finally landed in their hands on March 16th, a sizable number of customers began to notice their tablet experiencing issues with Wi-Fi. Worse, it’s not an isolated problem with a few bad iPads: in fact, there are enough people complaining that they’ve managed to fill up a huge thread on Apple’s official support forums.

So far, Apple’s remained mum on what’s causing the issue.
